The commercial operations of Bahrain’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal is set to commence in May, according to the CEO of Bahrain’s National Oil and Gas Authority (NOGA), Reuters reported.
The first LNG shipment will be imported from UAE’s Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).
The terminal also includes an offshore LNG receiving jetty and breakwater, a regasification platform, subsea gas pipelines from the platform to shore, an onshore gas receiving facility, and an onshore nitrogen production facility.
The LNG terminal is 98% ready with a capacity of 800 million cubic feet per day (mcf/d) to enable the country to import the super-chilled fuel and fulfill the growing demand for natural gas.
Bahrain LNG is the developer of the receiving and regasification terminal within the Khalifa bin Salman Port.
